Celebrating our 14th year, the Chester County Balloon Festival is a must attend event providing family fun for all ages. Experience Chester County and the unique and historic Del Val Region from the ground up! Minutes from Philadelphia, easy drive from New York, Washington D.C. and New Jersey. 

The Chester County Balloon Festival is a non-profit organization with portions of the proceeds going to the Chester County Hero Fund and other local youth community groups.


The expanded 3-day schedule highlights over 20+ hot air balloons taking flight twice per day, balloon glow featuring Special Shaped Balloon Rodeo, untethered and tethered balloon rides, and a walk-thru balloon.

We ask for your understanding if a flight must be cancelled due to weather. Prevailing weather and winds may postpone or delay ballooning. It's the Festival balloonmeister 's decision to determine if the larger parameters meet FAA requirements for safe balloon flight operations, but it's each Pilot's responsibility to determine whether it is safe to fly their own unique aircraft, equipment, given passengers and crew. The pilot’s decision is final. The pilots and committee will be just as disappointed as you and maybe even more because they know what you are missing!
